Dune Maker Hook How To

Dune Maker Hooks

If you’re going to dress as a Fremen from Dune, you’re going to need a maker hook. The device, sometimes called a worm stick, is used by the Fremen to wrangle sandworms — inasmuch as sandworms can be wrangled. DeviantArt user elfgrove (B.R. Shropshire) crafted hooks for friends participating in a Dune costume group at Dragon Con. The process is pretty straightforward and likely easier than making the stillsuit portion of the Fremen costume.

It starts with metal pipes and curved hook pieces. Shropshire attached them together and used spackle and Model Magic to add the tips and ends of the hooks, painted them, aged them, and added leather wraps. I sort of want to make some of these maker hooks just to prop up in the corner of my room for sandworm emergencies.
